The family of Nugent is descended from that of Nogent de 
Rotrou, descended from the illustrious house of Bellesme, in Nor- 
mandy — two brothers of which family, Gilbert and Hugh, accom- 
panied William the Conqueror from Normandy, and were with 
him at the Battle of Hastings. 

In the reign of Henry II., (1172.) Sir Gilbert de Nogent, witli 
liis brothers — II. Rich ard, III. Christopher, IV. John, came in 
the expedition to Ireland in company with' Sir Hugh de Lacie, 


The county of Meath was given by his Majesty to Sir Hugh de 
Lacie, to hold of the Crown by Knight's service, and Sir Gilbert 
d e Nogent ma r rying his sister Ros a, obtained with her as a mar- 
riage portion, the Barony of Delvin, (except the village of Tor- 
rochelack, belonging to the Abbot of Foure,) which large tract of 
lands he distributed amongst his brothers and others. He died 
JnJ[202, without issue surviving, having had two sons, Adam and 
Hugh, who both deceased without issue, during the life time of 
their father. 

Richard, the second brother, succeeded, whose only daughter 
and heir married Richard le Tuit, who became, jure uxoris, third 
Baron of Delvin. He was father to John le Tuit, fourth Baron 
of Delvin, whose son, Richard Fitzjohn le Tuit, fifth Baron, married 
Eglantina Dewswell, and was father of Thomas Fitzjohn, sixth 
Baron ; he dropped the name of le Tuit, and his son, Richard 
Fitzjohn, seventh Baron, was father of John Fitzjohn, eighth 
Baron Delvin, whose only daughter and heir, Catherine, married 
Sir William Nugent in 1407, (8th of Henry IV.,) descended from 
Sir Christopher, son of Sir Gilbert Nugent. He, jure uxoris, 
became ninth Baron Delvin. Thus the honors remained in the 
family of Tuit, or Tuite, for one hundred and twenty years. By 
his wife Catherine he had issue, 

I. Richard, of whom presently. 

II. William Oge, of Moyrath, which he obtained in right of his 
wife Joane, daughter and heir of Richard Talbot. By her 
he was ancestor of the Nugents of Moyrath, Dardistown, 
Balmnselott, Culvin, and of Gillstown, in the county of 
Roscommon — of whom see further hereafter. 

Sir Christopher, the third brother, who became settled at Bal- 
rath, was succeeded by Sir Almericus Nugent, living about the 
year 1254, who was father to Sir Robert, the father of Sir Hugo 
de Nugent, whose son Richard, was father to the Sir William, 
who, in right of his wife, Catherine Fitzjohn le Tuit, became 
ninth Baron of Delvin. ; by her he had issue as above. Sir William, 
ninth Lord Delvin, died before 1415. 

We now return to Richard, tenth Baron Delvin, heir to his 
mother. .He was Sheriff of Meath in 1424. In 1422 he had a 
giant often pounds a-year from Henry VI. for services performed 
during the reign of Henry V. ; and in 142J, a further giant of 


twenty pounds for the capture of 0*Conogher, who, with Hubert 
Tyrrell, had robbed and spoiled his Majesty's subjects near Mo- 
lyngar ; and in 1428, he had an order, dated at Trim, to receive 
twenty marcs out of the Exchequer, as a recompense fur " having 
impoverished his fortune in the King's JVars.'' In 1444 he was 
Lord Deputy of Ireland, under James, Earl of Ormonde, and Se- 
neschal of Meath in 1452. He married Catherine, d aughter and — 
heir of Thpmas _J3rake, of Carlanstown, in tftecounty of Meath. 
He died before 1475, and left issue by his wife, 

I. James, his successor. 

II. John, from whom descended the family of Killagh. 

III. Edward, of Cloncoskrine, now Cloncoskoran, in the 
county Watertord. 

James died during the lifetime of his father, in 1450, leaving 
issue by Elizabeth, his wife, eldest daughter and co-heir of Sir 
Robert Hollywond 1 of Tartavne. orArtane, in the county of Dublin. 
This Lady brought into the Nugent family the estates of Drumcree, 
Dysert, and Donouer, which had been purchased by her father 
from the heirs of Sir Theobald de Verdon, who had married the 
the eldest daughter of Sir William de Lacie, in the reign of 
Richard II. 

I. Christopher, of whom presently. 

II. Robert, of Dru.ucree — See Appendix II. 

III. Lavallin, of Dysart — See Appendix III. 

IV. Andrew, of Donore — See Appendix IV ', — of all of whom 
hereafter separately. 

We now return to Christopher, who succeeded his grandfather 
as eleventh Baron of Delvin. He married Elizabeth, daughter of 
Robert Preston, Viscount Gormanstown, and died in 1493, leaving 
a son and successor, 

Richard, twelfth Baron of Delvin. He sat in Parliament in 
the time of Henry VII., and was appointed Commander-in-Chief ? 
of all the forces in Dublin, Meath, Kildare, and Louth. He was <? 
summoned to the Parliament which sat at Castle Dermott in > 
1498, but neglecting to appear, was fined forty shillings. In 
1527 he was made Lord Deputy of Ireland, and in 1528 was 
treacherously made a prisoner of, by the Irish Chief O'Conor. 
This Irish Chief in 1528, preying upon the borders of the Pale, 
the Lord Deputy ordered a yearly rent due to him, out of certain 

Carucates of Land in Meatli, to be detained. This produced a con- 
ference the 12th of May, 1528, at the Castle of Rathinin that county, 
belonging to Sir William D'Arcie, when, by stratagem, the Lord 
Deputy was seized and detained a prisoner. Many of his men, 
in endeavouring to rescue him, were slain, wounded, and made 
prisoners ■ all exertions to procure his release proved ineffec- 
tual ; he remained a prisoner until the Government paid to 
O'Conor his rent in the following February. He married Isabella, 
daughter of Thomas Fitzgerald, second son of Gerald Earl of 
Kildare, and died in 1537, leaving issue, 

I. Christopher, of whom presently. 

II. Sir Thomas Nugent, of Carlanstown, Knt., married Mar- 
garet, daughter of George Fleming, second son of James, 
Lord Slane, and was ancestor of Robert, Earl Nugent, whose 
eldest daughter and heir, Lady Mary Elizabeth Nugent, mar- 
ried the Marquis of Buckingham. 

We now return to Sir Christopher, Knt. He married Marian, 
daughter of Nicholas, Lord Howth. and dying in the life time of 
his father, in 1531, left issue, with two daughters, Catherine, 
who married, first, Peter, Lord Trimbleston ; and secondly, 
Robert Cusaok, second Baron of the Exchequer. Eleanor mar- 
ried John, son of Lord Dunsany. The sons were, 

I. Richard, of whom presently. 

II. James, of Coolamber, of whom hereafter. 

III. Oliver, of Ballina. 

IV. Gerald, of Lassaghnadan. 

V. Nicholas, Chief Justice of the Common Pleas, of whom 

We now return to Richard, thirteenth Baron, who succeeded 
his grandfather when fourteen years of age ; he was granted a 
ward by the King, to his prime minister, Thomas Lord Cromwell, 
In 1553, with the English of Athlone, be conquered Thady Rufus 
O Melaghlin, and expelled him out of the country ; and in the 
same year, at the request of Cormac M'Coghlan, burned the 
country of M'Coghlan, contiguous to Lower Delvin. He accom- 
panied, in 155/, the Lord Deputy into Ulster, against James 
M'Donnell the Scot, and died in 1560. He married Elizabeth, 
eldest daughter of Jenico Preston, Viscount Gormanston, by 
•rhom he left issue, 

I. Christopher. II. William. 

III. Mary, married to Sir Thomas Nugent of Moyrath. 

Christopher, fourteenth Baron of Delvin, succeeded his father 
when fifteen years old. He had a grant in 1563 of the Castle 
and lands of Ballycorbett, in the Kin?'s County, to him and his 
heirs male. In 1565 he received the honor of knighthood. He 
was made Captain of Slewght-Williaro, in Annally, in 1565, and 
expressed such forwardness and fidelity to the Crown, that in 
1567 articles were made with his Lordship by the Queen, autho- 
rising him to extirpate the OWIores, and their followers. But 
notwithstanding his services to the Crown in prosecuting these 
rebels, he was sent a prisoner to the Tower of London in 1580, on sus- 
picion of having entered into correspondence with the rebels of 
Leinster ; his innocence shortly after having been made manifest, 
he was discharged from prison. He returned to Ireland, and sat 
in Sir John Perrot's Parliament in 1585. In 1588 he had a 
grant of the Priory of Foure, in this county. In 1503 he was 
appointed leader of the forces, at the general hosting on Tarah 
Hill, and with his kinsmen, the Nugents, he brought twenty men. 
His services were so acceptable that Queen Elizabeth, by 
privy seal in 159", {besides divers leases of lands,) ordered 
him, by warrant, a fee farm grant of forfeited lands in the coun- 
ties of Longford and Cavan, at his election, as should amount to 
the crown rent of one hundred pounds a-year, English money. 
This warrant was not, however, executed during his life, on ac- 
count of the disturbed state of the country < but King James, in 
1603, ordered the sum of sixty pounds, in lands, to be granted to 
his widow and son. He died in 1602, having married Mary, 
(daughter of Gerald,' eleventh Earl of Kildare,) who died in 1610, 
and was buried at Castletown Delvin ; by her he had issue, 

I. Richard, of whom presently. 

II. Christopher, of Corbetstown, married Lady Anne Forth, 
alias Cusack, and died without issue about 1649. 

III. Gerald, or Gerrott, of Lissaganeden, who married a sister 
of Rory O'Donnell's, Earl of Tyrconnell, and relict of Sir 
Rorke, by whom he left issue a son, Richard, his heir.

without issue, having married Mary (who died in 1645) 
daughter of Sir Patrick Barnwall, of Crickstown.

Dysert, and died without issue.

whose son, Ignatius, succeeded, and was knighted by Charles 
VI. He married Anne, daughter of William Langton,by whom 
he had a son, John Nugent, who succeeded. He died in 
1756, leaving by Mary, his wife, daughter of Sir Ignatius 
Pallis, a son and heir, Christopher, of Killasonna, who mar 
ried Bridget, daughter and heir of John O'Reilly, of Latoon,

died in 1636,) by whom he had issue six sons and three 

XI. Margaret, married Fitzgerald. 

XII. Juliana, was the second wife of Sir Gerald Aylmer,of Do- 
nedea, in the county Kildare, Baronet. 

We now return to Richard, fifteenth Baron Delvin, born in 
1585. He was knighted in 1603, at the creation of Rory O'Don- 
nell, Earl of Tyrconnell ; in 1607 he was arrested and committed 
to the Castle of Dublin a prisoner, by Lord Deputy Chichester, 
for High Treason, being concerned in a conspiracy with the Earls 
of Tyrone, Tyrconnel, Maguire O'Cahan, and most of the heads 
of the Irish Septs in Ulster, to surprise the Castle of Dublin, cut 
off the Lord Deputy and Council, dissolve the State, and set up a 
government of their own ; but owing to the negligence and cor- 
ruption of Tristram Eccleston, Constable of the Castle, his Lord- 
ship's servant was allowed to bring in certain ropes, by the assis- 
tance of which he escaped. In 1608 he voluntarily surrendered 

to his Majesty, who took him Into favour, and directed a pardon 
to be passed the Great Seal for his life, lands, and goods. In the 
parliaments of 1613 and 1615, his Lordship was present and so 
effectually regained his Majesty's favuur, that he created him in 
1621 Earl of Westmeath. In 1628 and 1633, his Lordship was 
specially employed to King Charles I., by the Irish, as their 
agent, for the redress of divers grievances they complained of, 
and for obtaining sundry graces from his Majesty, who was pleased 
to agree to his suit in their favour. 

In recompense for all his costs and trouble, which the Irish 
had neglected to pay, his Majesty, by letters dated at Westminster 
in 1633, ordered him the sum of five hundred pounds English. 
In 1634 he sat in the parliament held by Lord Deputy Wentworth, 
and was a leading man in the house of Peers, but refusing to join 
with the Lords and gentry of the Pale in the rebellion of 1641 
and, in particular, refusing to send a certain number of men, de- 
manded by them, to the siege of Drogheda, a severe course was 
threatened to be taken with him for his refusal, being then aged 
and infirm, and dreading their power and threats, he left his house 
at Clonyn j a party of forty horse was sent to escort him by the 
Earl of Ormonde, but they were attacked near Athboy by one 
thousand rebels, and obliged to yield. The rebels seized his 
plate and money, to the value of a thousand pounds, stripped 
the Countess and her gentlewoman in a most shameful manner, 
massacred his servants, and damaged his houses and lands to the 
amount of twenty thousand pouuds. He died in 1641, of the fa- 
tigue and hardship he suffered on this occasion. He married Jane 
Plunkett,* daughter of Christopher, ninth Earl of Killeen, and 
sister to Lucas, created Earl of Fingal ; by her he had issue, 
I. Christopher, Lord Delvin, married Lady Anne M'Donnell, 
eldest daughter of Randal, Earl of Antrim, and dying in 1625, 
during the lifetime of his father, was buried at Clonyn ; he 
had issue by her an only son, 

1 Richard, who succeeded, of whom presently. 

♦This lady was a wife of very thrifty and saving habits; she turned 
every thing in her power to profit, and would not admit of the slightesc 
waste in the household concerns. She was supposed by these means 
to have acquired a considerable sum of money, and was known in her 
family by the name of " Jenny the Scraper."

II. Francis, of Tobber, who engaged in the rebellion, died 
without issue. 

III. John, of Dromeng, ancestor of Laval), Count Nugent, 
Field Marshal in the Austrian service. 

IV. Laurence. 

V. Ignatius, a Colonel in the French service. 

VI. Bridget. VII. Mary. 

We now return to Richard, who succeeded his grandfather, 
sixteenth Baron, and second Ear). Hetook his seat in the House 
of Peers in 1644 5 in 1650 he was General of the Irish 
forces raised by the Province of Leinster, and in 1652 was ex- 
cepted from pardon for life and estate, by Cromwell's act of par- 
liament for settling Ireland, but his Lordship having entered 
into certain articles with the Commissioners of Government at 
Kilkenny, early in the same year, leave was given him to transport 
some Irish forces to Spain, and for the raising thereof, he re- 
ceived a passport to travel with three servants in Leinster and 
Munster for twenty-eight days. His stay in Ireland was further 
prolonged for six months, with license to raise and transport one 
thousand cavalry (out of such Irish natives as were, or had been 
in arms against the Parliament,) for the service of the King of 
Spain. In 1653 he had an order to enjoy such of his estate as 
lay waste and undisposed of, and should be planted by him, 
together with such as he was in possession of from May, 1652, 
paying contribution, and in November he was permitted to enjoy 
a full third part of his estate. 

He raised his regiment for the Spanish service, and obtained 
leave to transport them, with himself and his servants, into Flan- 
ders, and to return. After his return, an order for his apprehen- 
sion, together with some of the leading men of Galway, was issued 
in 1659 ; but surviving all these troubles, he was considered, after 
the restoration, as a person meriting, in an especial manner, his 
Majesty's grace and favour. 

In 1666 he had a grant of such right as he had to the lands of 
Castletown, Balrath, &c, in the Barony of Delvin ; in 1667, of 
his right to certain other lands, and in 1668 he had an assign- 
ment of two-third parts of several Rectories, with two grants of 
lands under the Act of Settlement. 

He re-built the Chapel of Foure, as a burial place for himself and 


his posterity, as appears from the inscription on a large stone 
over the north entrance : — 

The Right Honourable 


of West-meath, at his own 

Expenses re-builded this 

Chaple, and Castle, for 

The Burying Place and 

Pious use of himselfe and 

His successors, anno

Londonderry. He was killed at Cavan in 1690. He mar- 
ried Alice, third surviving daughter of SirThomas Newcomen, 
of Sutton, in the county of Dublin, Knt.; by her he had issue, 
two sons of the name of Thomas, who both died unmarried, 
and three daughters — Mary, Frances, and Margaret, none of 
whom survived their father.

TTe now return to Christopher, the eldest son. He married 
Mary, eldest daughter of Richard Butler, of Kileasb, in the 
county of Tipperary, (niece to James, first Duke of Ormonde,) 
and dying' before his father, left issue by her, (who deceased in 
1/37, aged ninety-six,) 

I. Richard, who succeeded. 

II. Thomas, succeeded his brother, of whom hereafter. 

III. John, who succeeded his brother Thomas. 

IV. Frances. V. Mary. VI, 

Richard succeeded on the death of his grandfather, and became 
seventeenth Baron and third Earl. He took on him the religious 
order of the Capuchin, became a Friar, and died in 1714, at 
Wassy, in a convent. He was succeeded in the honours by his 

Thomas, eighteenth Baron and fourth Earl, born in 1669. He 
had a pension of a hundred and fifty pounds a-year in King 
Charles H's. reign. He married when about sixteen years old, 
and was sent to travel. He returned about the time of the res- 
toration, and was appointed Lieutenant-Colonel in the Earl of 
Tyrone's regiment, in King James's army ; for his services 
therein, be was outlawed in 1691, but being in the city of Limerick 
when besieged by King William's forces, and one of the hostages 
exchanged for the observation of the articles of surrender, his out- 
lawry was reversed, and he was restored to his estate and honors. 
Such reverses were by no means uncommon during the civil wars. 

He married Margaret, only daughter of Sir John Bellew, Knt., 
by whom he had issue, and died in 1752.

III. Lady Mary Nugent, married in 1705, Lord Athenry.

In the descendants of these Ladies, the Barony of Delvin is pre- 
sumed to have fallen into abeyance. 

John, the third brother, succeeded, and was fifth Earl. He en- 
tered the French army, and was a Major-General. He married 
Margaret, daughter of Count Molza, of the Duchy of Modena, in

His Lordship died in Brabant in 1754, and was succeeded by bis

and took his seat in Parliament in 1755. He was of the Privy 
Council, and an original Knight Companion of the Order of St. Pa- 
trick. In 1 787 he had a pension from the Crown of eight hundred 
pounds annually. He married, first, Mary, daughter and heiress 
to Walter Durand Stapleton, of the Island of Hispaniola, by her 
(who brought him a considerable estate, and died in 1750,) he 
had issue, and died in 1791 ,

III. Henry, born in 1762, died in 1779' 

IV. Catherine, born in 1766, married in 1784, Hon. John, 
second son of Lord Rodney. 

We now return to Richard, Lord Delvin, born in 1742, and 
killed in a duel in 1761.* — Died unmarried. 

♦This duel took place at Marlborough Green, or Gardens, in Dublin, 
between his Lordship and a gentleman named O'Reilly, who ever after 
was known by the name of Delvin O'Reilly. His Lordship is reported 
to have been a very expert swordsman, and very successful in all his 
duels, of which he had many, and that he frequently provoked quarrels 
for the purpose of showing off his skill in the use of that weapon. On 
this, to him, fatal quarrel, he is said to have behaved in such a manner 
to a lady in company with Mr. O'Reilly, as to render it necessary for that 
gentleman to take notice of it ; on which his Lordship immediately 
drew his sword, calling on Mr. O'Reilly to follow his example. Although 
Mr. O'Reilly wore a sword, as was the custom of the day, he is thought 
not to have known whether the scabbard actually contained a blade or 
not, never having drawn it in his life ; however, knowing well the cha- 
racter, reputation, and expertness of his antagonist, while he was plac- 
ing himself in an attitude the better to show off his figure and skill, he 
was run through the body by Mr.-O'Reifly, and fell a corpse. I have 
heard it said that little or no enquiry was ever made about the matter, 
*s society found they could get on very well without Lord Delvin.
